Jack Douglas said:Yes, remote control is pretty important to me and so I suggest Scott that you pre-order and verify all the features for me on the 1DX2, and I'll jump ship! Looks like the price of accessories could be a factor but the Crane 2 sure did give Ronin a kick in the butt to compete and it looks like they've acted with vigour. Very interesting.

PDB: Great to see you!!
Please, if you're an early adopter here, please keep us up to date on what you get and what you find with it.....
You've given me some good info and advice on a lot of things here and I'd be VERY interested in your thoughts and experiences on this when you get it...
Jack Douglas said:Good man Scott. I'll be waiting to here the very first experiences. I need a gimbal by August at the latest so maybe this will work out. Are you getting any accessories - esp remote??
cayenne said:I looked around the DJI site....and I didn't see the option to buy the follow focus motor....
I'd really like THAT, at which point if I heard it all worked for the ballpark of $1K or under, I"ll be putting an order in too!!!
Ugh, this may be an expensive year.....I'm hoping to get an iMac Pro in the near future too...that's gonna be just over $8K.....

It's the same thing, the DJI only works on Panasonic cameras so far via cable and software/camera interface. They are showing a motor accessory that will work on pretty much any lens but I'd be surprised if they don't make the AF work via cable to camera, as the Crane 2 does, in time.
However, as I already said I rely on DPAF at this point and having the screen unobstructed by the back arm so I can use the touch screen easily is a big bonus.
